There has been much speculation about Candis Cayne and her relationship with Caitlyn Jenner.
Some seem to think that the sidekicks are more than just friends. However, according to Candis, the transgender friends are just that — friends.
While Candis Cayne has been supportive of Caitlyn Jenner as the former Olympian adjusts to her new life, their close relationship, as depicted on the E! docuseries, I Am Cait, she has reassured fans that the two are merely friends despite the media frenzy over whether they are a couple.
Cayne was asked about their relationship status when she appeared on Access Hollywood on Wednesday.
“Caitlyn and I are really good friends. I really love her a lot, and it’s been amazing being by her side through this whole process,” the actress said.

Cayne, who invited Jenner for a sleepover at her L.A. home on Sunday’s episode of I Am Cait, also said that Jenner’s not really her type. Instead, the former drag queen dished on her real crush — Jon Stewart.
And although fans may be disappointed that Jenner has not found a new love, Candis reassures everyone that she and Jenner will remain “really, really, really good friends.”

She also defended her new pal, who has been criticized for the “fairytale” aspect of her transition.
“She’s lived her whole life being transgender but never being able to do anything about it,” Cayne said. “That’s just as hard as somebody like me, who at 24 decided that’s what I wanted to do with my life in order to be okay with things. So I went through other struggles, but she did also.”
